Also, new skills are 10XP and you start at a value of 10. Check with me first.
Blythe (and everyone for that matter) - I'm not gonna enforce any sort of requirement for raising existing skills, so OOCly don't worry about "justifying" skill rises. Frankly, they're so easy to justify anyway (as a result of not knowing some stuff, Miyo has googled it for a Gen Ed rise for example) that its not worth. If, however, you feel you want to justify them to yourself then that's obviously fine.
darras (and everyone) - If you did I must have missed it but I'll adjust now. And I'm ignoring the session limits. Broadly, a session is from when I give xp to when I next give xp for the purpose of passion activation and whatnot, but I'm willing to play a little fast and loose on that.
